Xibalba

California's Xibalba (not the Mexican black metal band of the same name) know their way around a downtuned groove. One listen to their new LP and it becomes apparent that not only does the band love its low-to-floor guitar sound (seriously doomy!), but they're not afraid to break it down for those in the mood to pick up some change. With their almost baritone guitar sound coupled with frontman Nathan Rebolledo's uber-pissed vocals, Xibalba distinguishes themselves from the droves of Hatebreed/Madball-sound-alikes.

Get therapy guys! Or maybe just keep on making brutal releases like the self-titled debut which is still available on vinyl via A389, and will soon be released via CD with additional material as Madre Mia Gracias Por Los Dias via the venerable Southern Lord on 6/21. Stream all of Madre Mia Gracias Por Los Dias below.

Xibalba are currently touring the East Coast and will play Party Expo TONIGHT at 7PM (6/16) with Cipher, Doomsday Mourning, and Brooksite as part of a string of dates with Foundation. Get out and try to buy some merch, they'll need all the dough they can get without a van... All tour dates, the LP stream, and a recent video for "Cold" is below....

Awaits the influx of indie loser "commentary".

I'll also check out Foundation.

^ i doubt you 'concur'. don't use 'concur' unless you're a lawyer, because you probably 'agree' and you're probably a douche.

You can only use concur if you're Leo Dicaprio in "Catch me if you can"

I understand your bitterness towards having your HIV potentially turn into the AIDS virus. Not everyone can be Jm J. Bullock.

Andy Dick just sent you a get well card with lots of x's and o's. How sweet.

Hardcore bros you're not funny. Stick your tortued screaming and emotional tatoos and leave the cracking wise to the pros...

C'mon, stop embarrasing yourself. Even Boy George is telling you to stop now. Please, for the love of the Community!!!

Boy george? Lulz. Good one. C'mon now tatoos, pained screaming and broing down, that's your lane. Not the jokes...

"What do you have like the 1996 almanac open for joke references?"

No, just my imagination. In other words, I'm actually clever (unlike your comment that made no sense). It's alright though, not everyone can be as great as me. No need to start sobbing.

6:32: It's ok. HIV starts to affect the memory too, so misspellings are common.

you're a one trick pony with your jokes. not unlike this band with their eternal breakdown.
